Air Quality and your Attached Garage

"Starting a car in a garage, even with the garage door wide open, can produce elevated concentration of combustion pollutants that can find their way into your home as "respirable particles."

"... a Health Canada study involving more than 100 houses revealed that houses with attached garages had measurable concentrations of benzene (a gasoline-related pollutant) in the indoor air, while houses with no garages or detached garages had little or no benzene".

Every Calgary home owner and Home Inspector should read the rest of this article over at Midland Free Press. I also want to thank Rob Parker of AmeriSpec Home Inspection Services, for bringing this to our attention.
